Our Vision Informs Everything We Do Down to Our Financing Options

to full payment at the start of the membership. At $30–$40 per month — depending on the health of your gums — it’s a great way to ensure you receive your cleanings and exams at a reasonable price, and the cost includes an emergency visit. And, in the event that you need treatment, the Gardens Dental Care Membership Plan comes with a 20 percent discount on all procedures.

If you’ve been by the office recently, you may have noticed that we’ve decorated a door with our core values. While these values have always been integral to our practice, we wanted to make them publicly visible in an effort to tell our patients what we’re all about. They also serve as a reminder to our staff about why we do things the way we do.

At the top of the list, you’ll find our vision for Gardens Dental Care. That vision, “Consistently Providing the Best Patient Experience,” informs every aspect of how we care for patients. It’s why we’re constantly adding new services and the latest in dental technology. It’s also why we’ve expanded our hours to make it easier for all of our patients to come in for regular cleanings and exams. We know that providing the best experience isn’t just about what happens when you’re in the office; it affects everything, including the part of dentistry that people are least likely to talk about. Let’s face it: Dental treatment costs money. Many people will talk about the benefits of treatment without ever acknowledging that treatment isn’t

On top of offering the Gardens Dental Care Membership Plan, we’ve added Compassionate Financing, an excellent option for those who won’t qualify for Care Credit as the result of a credit crunch. Sadly, credit is the be-all and end-all metric for most dental financing options. Compassionate Financing is different. They recognize that a person may have a steady job and checking account, allowing them to make monthly payments no matter what their credit score looks like. We’re honored to provide another way for patients to receive the care they need before problems become more damaging — and more expensive.

Also, when you get a crown placed, it is under a five-year warranty, something few other offices offer. Dental work will last if you spend four minutes in the morning and four minutes in the evening brushing, flossing, and doing any other special treatments we recommend. You also must keep your regularly scheduled cleanings and exams for the warranty to be valid. When we say our vision is “Consistently Providing the Best Patient Experience,”we mean it. The financial aspect of dentistry may not be the most glamorous or exciting, but it’s a very real concern for patients. We’d be foolish to pretend otherwise. –Dr. David Yates We now have a live front desk available 24/7 though our website: gardensdentalcare.com

free. In my mind, that’s a bit disingenuous. Providing the best possible care always has to be assessed through the lens of price. Our practice understands that not everybody has unlimited funds to spend on dentistry. To that end, providing flexible financing options is another important aspect of our vision. Recently, we’ve made some changes to our in-house savings plan to help give patients a better understanding of their options. We’ve always offered this option for patients who either don’t have insurance or don’t want their insurance company to dictate their care options. Now we’ve decided to make the program even better. We’ve added online integration through software called Kleer and renamed it the Gardens Dental Care Membership Plan. Patients can just go to Kleer.com and enter our office code: YH2U. With it, patients can log on and instantly see their fees and savings, complete transparency. We’re also now offering month-to-month payment options as opposed
